Ticket #7441 (new enhancement)
Expose "--vrdpaddress 127.0.0.1" in the GUI
|Reported by:||mh||Owned by:|
RDP is not just for remote access but also for local, headless machines. So it would be great to add a very simple "restrict to local host" checkbox in the Remote Display configuration tab. This checkbox would just configure "--vrdpaddress" to "127.0.0.1", for obvious security benefits.
I realize this feature is already available on the command line but having it exposed in the GUI would make a lot more of people using it, making VirtualBox a generally more secure product.
A more advanced (and maybe overkill) variant of this feature would let the user bind not just to its loopback interface but to any of its network interfaces.
